Topic; It is becoming increasingly difficult for government to fund TAFEs and universities at current levels and the funding model will need to change in the near future. With this in mind, should students or businesses pay more to support tertiary education in Australia? Why?
Students are to use at least 5 different sources (references) to provide at least 5 different in-text references in their essay. At least one reference is to be a journal article. Students are to write the essay in full prose, using appropriate paragraphs (approximately 100-150 words each paragraph), and a variety of high quality, academic sources (references) in order of quality from highest to lowest as follows:
- Academic journal articles;
2. Academic books, including edited books;
3. Reports from international institutions such as the OECD and World Bank;
4. News media articles;
5. Government websites; and
6. Websites from businesses, industry groups, consumer groups or professional bodies
A reference list (a list of the references actually cited in-text) must be included as part of the essay (separate files will not be accepted). The reference list must use a recognised scholarly referencing system using the author/date format. All information relating to the reference is to be included – if you cannot find the year of publishing or the author, then it is probably not an appropriate academic reference. Page numbers are required for in-text references.
